Commencement Will Go On At UW-O, Virtually

The commencement will go
on, virtually. That’s the news coming from Chancellor Leavitt’s office on
Friday, as he announced that UW-Oshkosh will host a virtual commencement
program Saturday, May 16. 


While the plan is to include as much Graduation Day excitement as graduates have come to expect from attending in person, Leavitt
says the May graduates will also be invited to walk in the midyear commencement ceremony
after the fall semester, which is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 19 at UWO. 


In a
statement issued to the campus, Leavitt said the decision was a painful one,
but one that was reached after receiving feedback from students in emails as
well as a survey that was created by the commencement team.
